I never shoot what I have on hand. If I want to go shooting I buy what I'm going to shoot that afternoon. Or I will order a shipment specifically for a shooting date.
In the middle 70's, I "acquired" a German 9mm Luger for my brother's collection of handguns. After it was checked and tested by a gunsmith, he took it to the range. He said it was the best shooter in his collection of then late model Smith & Wesson and Colt pistols.I have an old KKW German training rifle in .22 and I restored it a while back. It has open iron sights. My son easily hits 4” steel plates at 250 feet With this rifle. It is more fun to shoot than the semi auto .22s we have...
Right, but that is not a K.98k. It is a .22 training rifle. Walther made a KKW rifle patterned on the K.98k for the SA. I was not certain if Mauser also made this training rifle along with the K.98k, and was unaware that Gustloff Werke was involved in training rifle production.Mauser made the K98k.......never heard of a KKW......
I think my favorite .22 guns are all made by Ruger.My favorite 22 plinkers are the Henry Rifle lever actions, Super accurate and as smooth as silk. I have 3, the Golden Boy, the Silver Boy, and the Evil Roy, just terrific rifles.
